Sarath Koruprolu, M.S.

Sarath koruprolu, masters in bioengineering, university of toledo, analysis of posterior dynamic stabilization systems,in vitro testing,annular repair devices, rhode island hospital orthopedic lab

Sarath comes to RIH orthopaedic foundation after completing his Master's degree in Bioengineering at the University of Toledo. Sarath has an extensive background in the field of orthopaedic biomechanics under the direct supervision of Dr. Vijay Goel. Sarath develops new testing technologies and designs innovative experiments to translate complex in-vivo scenarios into representative biomechanical experiments. He maintains and updates the techniques for lab applications by reviewing literature and staying current with advances in surgery, biomechanics and biomaterials.

Sarath is currently the Project Leader for biomechanical and sports equipment testing and, QA deputy at RIHOF. His functions include protocol development, specimen preparation, biomechanical testing, data analysis, statistical analysis, writing reports and abstracts for conferences, manuscript reviews for peer-reviewed journals and assisting in the maintenance of RIHOF’s quality compliance.
